The North American Programs are alternate weekend Executive MBA programs designed to serve long-distance students. The quality and class time for each program is the same. The different section schedules offer flexibility for the needs of our diverse participants.

January North American Program

The January North American Program is also an alternate-weekend program serving long-distance students, as well as local students who travel frequently for work.

Participants travel to Evanston Friday morning, classes are held Friday afternoon and all day Saturday. Accommodations are provided at the Allen Center on Friday nights, with an option to stay Saturday night. Tutorials and study group meetings take place during the weekend.
